BPD wants game room ordinance

BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

The Beaumont Police Department is looking for city council to pass an ordinance that would tighten the rules on game rooms in the city.

Investigators say in the past three years, the number of game rooms have increased, most of which are illegal.

It's possible to run a legal game room, but I've never seen it and we've probably, I don't know how many hundreds we've investigated over the years, said Sgt.  Mike Custer.

The proposed ordinance would require game room owners to obtain licenses that comply with city, county and state regulations.

Under the new ordinance, investigators would also be able to inspect the rooms and penalties would be handed down when owners dont comply with the rules.

It will give us another tool to police these types of locations, said Sgt. Custer.

Basically, it will make it a little more difficult for them to operate, said Lt. Ky Brown.

The two say they have the proposal complete and are waiting for an opening in city council to present their idea.
